  • Did you check Google licensing agreements for Google Maps? – Scott Jul 16 '14 at 12:43

Per Google after a little search:

Things not permitted:

Don't copy or imitate Google's trade dress, including the look and feel of Google web design properties or Google brand packaging, distinctive color combinations, typography, graphic designs, product icons, or imagery associated with Google.

    Also, specifically about the maps logo, google.com/permissions/geoguidelines.html says "Feel free to use a hyperlink on your website or within your application to send users to Google Maps — we appreciate it! Our one request is that you do not use the Google or Google Maps logos as the hyperlink. Please just use text or another image of your choice." – Glenn Randers-Pehrson Jul 16 '14 at 13:46
